The duchess of Sussex wore a floor-length Dior kaftan to a reception at the residence of the British ambassador to Morocco.
Rabat – Ever since marrying Britain’s Prince Harry in May of last year, Meghan Markle has transfixed the world as she quickly established herself as a style icon.
She cemented this further during her recent visit to Morocco; even at seven months pregnant she was as stylish as ever.
She wore her most glamorous look yet to a reception at the residence of the British ambassador to Morocco on Sunday evening, sporting a cream Dior kaftan, paired with her staple simple and glowy makeup and £7,000 earrings. The dress was clearly inspired by traditional Moroccan kaftans, flowing and draping flatteringly over her baby bump. The sleeves were adorned with a line of beading from the sleeves to the floor, adding another Moroccan touch.
Cape sleeves were a trend spotted everywhere on the Oscars red carpet the same night. Meghan also donned the style when she landed in Casablanca in a red Valentino cape dress on Saturday evening.
There was more to Meghan and Harry’s visit than just fashion, of course. The three-day trip was action-packed. The duke and duchess took time to visit Education for All in the Atlas Mountains, a center that provides education to financially disadvantaged girls in rural areas.
While there, Meghan received traditional henna intended to wish for good health during her seventh month of pregnancy. The duchess also took the opportunity to show off her French, telling the students at the school how proud she was of them.
The duchess also focused on the rights of women and girls during the ambassador’s reception on Sunday night, giving a speech on female empowerment to 130 influential guests.
